A 60-year-old woman was robbed of her purse in the parking lot of Kroger on 15th Street Monday night.

The victim said she was getting into her car at about 10:35 p.m. when a man in the adjacent parking spot got out of his car and pushed her into her vehicle, according to a Richmond County Sheriff's report.

The thief grabbed her purse then got back into his car and drove away.

I agree Fiat.. it's a shame

I agree Fiat.. it's a shame that one should have to consider such a thing, but that location is poorly lit, with little or no security.. they occastionally have a security guard standing watch inside but he seems to be chasing tail and posturing more often than he is providing security.. I live downtown and would prefer that my wife go to North Augusta or Washington Rd at that time of night if she's going alone, otherwise I go in her stead..

I have to agree, I have been

I have to agree, I have been to this Kroger several times over the past few years, usually late at night and I have to say the element that hangs around the parking lot makes me look over my shoulder.

Folks that work for Kroger

Folks that work for Kroger call that store (307) 'Da hood'. It has the worst rep as far as safety, but the element is slowly creeping up to the Washington Rd (676) location. For the sake of argument, you can be accosted in any parking lot.

The unit manager at the

The unit manager at the Washington Rd store doesn't play around with bad guys. Once, I saw him apprehend a shoplifter (that had just punched a clerk) by holding him upside down by the ankles until the police arrived.

Fiat, Frank, and any others

Fiat, Frank, and any others that are making remarks about what time of night a 60-year old woman goes to the store...

Let's put the blame squarely where it belongs- on the man that did this. If someone wants to go to the store to get something after dark they should be able to do so without fearing for their safety. And if they do, they aren't asking to be robbed. I don't care which Kroger it is.

You'd have a little more compassion if that was your sister or mother.

thank you for your Utopian

thank you for your Utopian thoughts Med, however I live in a real world where I'm aware of the situation around me.. as I said I live downtown, and my mother lives in Harrisburg thank you.. I'm fully aware that it SHOULD be safe and it would be NICE to think I could send my wife the few blocks to the store with no concern for her safety, or that my mother could WALK the few blocks from her home to the grocer without concern for her safety but I'm fully aware of the REALITY that that is not the case.. I will say that I'm continually vigilant, and always making attempts at making our neighborhoods safer (821-1080 is a quick dial on any phone) but until that HOPE becomes a REALITY I will still be aware of the reality of my surroundings... btw, my remarks were not lacking in compassion, if it were my sister or mother I would be surprised if the attacker were not around the corner at MCG
